DETECTA: Dynamic system on BigData for the detection of competency needs in the Construction sector

The Construction sector is affected by significant technological and regulatory changes and must address the challenges of producing buildings and infrastructures adapted to changing social and economic needs and meet global challenges such as energy security and climate change.

Any change in regulations, technology, social, etc., involves the adaptation of companies and workers to such changes, with training being the essential instrument to carry out such adaptation. At present it is possible to find static studies of training needs related to the professional skills for which it is necessary to qualify workers in the sector, but the reality is that tools such as the one proposed by the present project are needed that can detect qualification needs Dynamically and continuously over time and deliver results on:
- Training requirements, emanating from the companies themselves
- Trends in emerging professional skills.
- Current training offer and its adaptation to the demands of companies.
- Geo-positioning of both the job offer and the training offer

The main contribution of the project is DETECTA, a totally innovative tool that provides the results indicated previously. Its operation is based on the management and processing of all the information published in the Network on prospective reports, job offers and training offers to know in real time where and with what qualification the workers are needed and if the training strategies that are proposed In the market respond to the demands of the companies. This is possible thanks to the combination of semantic intelligence technologies with the Big Data's large-volume information analysis power.

Construction Products Regulations

20th February 2013

CE marking on construction products will, from the 1st of July 2013, become mandatory when covered by the harmonised European Standards (hEM). This legislation will lay down harmonised conditions for the marketing of construction products. Introduced by way of the EU Construction Products Regulation (No. 305/2011 – CPR) this was adopted in March 2011 however the main elements of this will apply from July of this year.

The main aim of the Construction Products Directives to overcome the technical barriers to trade where different standards, testing and labeling approaches for the same construction product arise.

All parties involved in the construction industry are advised to make themselves aware of the impending changes. An information paper was produced by the Building Regulations Advisory Board (BRAB) with the assistance of numerous stakeholders to provide importers, manufacturers, distributors and builders/designers with some basic information on the requirements of the legislation.
